500 ml bottle. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that sticked around a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like bourbon, oak, vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some booze, peaty smoke and licorice. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick, creamy, smooth and easy to drink. Moderate carbonation. I thought this was a good overall brew. $13.99 a bottle.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque black in the glass, with a thin brown head that dissipates to patches and light lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, boubon, wood and oaky vanilla, hints of licorice and chocolate, slight oxidation. Flavor is rich sweet dark malt, chocolate, oak, vanilla, latte coffee; hints of licorice, nice. Excellent mouth feel, thick and creamy with pleasant carbonation. An extremely well balanced and integrated barrelled stout. The malt, coffee and bourbon blend together in into a milkshake like whole. Finishes smoothly with light residual coffee and faint hop bitterness. This was really tasty. Nicely done.
